If you have ever considered visiting a holistic dentist, we invite you to call the team at Holistic Dental Centers to learn all about the benefits of this type of dental care. At our office, we focus on the overall wellness of our patients, not just the teeth and gums. We use only safe materials and avoid known toxins like mercury that are contained in amalgam fillings. Every procedure we perform and material we use is done thoughtfully with your health as our number one focus.
A major component of holistic dental care rests on preventative care. Taking care of the teeth and properly removing bacteria can help prevent such issues as decay and gum disease. Patients who end up with gum disease are at risk of the bacteria traveling through the blood stream and causing other health issues. Improving oral health care at home can help prevent these conditions and improve oral and total health.
In addition, we are a holistic dental practice that provides patients with safe removal of amalgam fillings. We can replace them with biocompatible composite or porcelain fillings, which are safer than amalgam. These restorations are also tooth colored, making them a much more aesthetically pleasing option. We are trained and experienced in the standards of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology to ensure the safety of our patients.
The oral systemic health connection focuses on how oral health can greatly affect overall health. By focusing on prevention and education, we help empower our patients to take control of their health and lower their risk of a number of health conditions. There is a proven link between issues such as periodontal disease posing an increased risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Simple acts such as brushing the teeth twice each day, flossing, and visiting with the dentist can greatly reduce these risks.
If you are ready for a new kind of dental care, one that focuses on you as the patient and helps you maintain a healthy body, call Holistic Dental Centers today to schedule an appointment. We have offices in Cary and Cornelius to serve all of our patients in the greater Raleigh area and across the state.
